The Organization ~ Hooverwood, an agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, Inc., is the only non-profit, Jewish skilled nursing facility in Indiana and is currently planning its expansion into a care continuum. With a focus on creating a respectful culture, Hooverwood serves a diverse population of Jewish and non-Jewish residents from all over the state – a mission it has been fulfilling for over a century. In addition to offering skilled nursing services, Hooverwood specializes in geriatric psychiatry, dementia care, and rehabilitative therapies. It also features numerous onsite amenities including a dental office, barber and beauty parlor, gift shop, chapel, and open-air courtyards. Hooverwood is Medicare and Medicaid certified.
Hooverwood’s goal of providing person-centered care in a nurturing and dignified living and working environment is supported not only by its 240 employees, but also by an unusually engaged group of more than 700 volunteers, The Hooverwood Guild, and a savvy 27-person Board of Directors with a 10-person Executive Committee who bring expertise in medicine, health care operations, human resources, and law.
The Opportunity ~ Hooverwood’s Board of Directors is searching for a Chief Executive Officer to manage all strategic, regulatory, and business aspects of a continuum of care including the existing skilled nursing facility and a soon-to-be constructed assisted living facility. Key ongoing leadership responsibilities include strategic expansion of high-quality service lines to ensure maximum census, continuous performance improvement of management, staff, and operations, active liaison and development with community referral sources, and successful fundraising to support Hooverwood’s mission. This position comes available as the current CEO is departing after 25 years with the organization.
The successful candidate will immediately supervise all nursing facility operations and play an active role in overseeing the completion of a $22.0 million renovation and construction project that is fully modernizing the physical plant. The end result of the renovation will include 154 beds (130 private resident rooms and 24 double-occupancy rooms) set in five “residential neighborhoods”, each inclusive of care, dining, recreation, and social opportunities. The successful candidate will also serve an active role in all aspects of developing, and then managing, a ground-up new $8.0 million, 24-apartment assisted living facility that will adjoin Hooverwood.
The Candidate ~ Essential experience includes employment as a senior-level manager within an organization offering around-the clock health care services, preferably in the long term care non-profit sector. The ideal candidate will have a track record of success as an inspiring manager with a compassionate service-oriented approach and the flexibility to interact in a positive supportive manner with residents, resident family members, employees, board members, regulators, colleagues, and community members. Business acumen along with strategic vision and implementation skills are a must. The ideal candidate will respect and understand the fundamental values and traditions of the Jewish faith. The successful candidate must hold an Indiana Health Facility Administrator license or secure one within a reasonable time.
The Location ~ Hooverwood is located on the beautiful 40-acre Max and Mae Simon Jewish Community Campus on the northwest-side of Indianapolis, Indiana. In addition to Hooverwood, this unique campus is home to the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, the Jewish Community Center, Jewish Family Services, and the Bureau of Jewish Education. The proximity of these agencies creates ongoing opportunities for Hooverwood residents to enjoy and benefit from numerous health, wellness, recreational, and cultural programs and services.
